Coronavirus Is Changing Reality, Part 7

arava-convention_931.01Can People Who Keep Up with Nature’s Plan Contract the Coronavirus?

Question: Thousands of people united at the recent Kabbalah convention in Israel. Immediately afterward, the global outbreak began. We connected and look at what happened. Did we cause this?

Answer: No, we did not cause this. First of all, the outbreak started before the convention; it just was not that obvious.

We were sure that nothing would happen to the convention participants. Since tens of thousands of people all over the world were connecting with each other physically and virtually through good efforts, there was no danger here.

I am sure that none of our friends, wherever they were, wherever they went to participate in the mirror congress, fell ill. There were no problems with anyone.

And how could there be if we were gathering in order to connect with even better connections between us. We move together with nature’s plan; therefore, we cannot be affected by the virus that affects egoistic connections between people, societies, and countries.

Question: Is it possible to deduce the following formula: people who will learn to connect with each other correctly won’t be affected by this virus?

Answer: Yes. I can give you my word for that. We just need to understand that this is not 100% because there are individual cases that we can analyze and see why this happened in our ranks. However, I do not think that we will hear about a huge number of Kabbalists being affected by the virus. It is impossible. We will just wait and see.

laitman_294.4What do Purim’s Characters Represent?

Question: What do the characters of the Purim holiday represent: the King, Queen Esther, Mordecai, and Haman?

Answer: Haman is our great egoism without which we could not achieve the complete correction.
Esther, from the word “concealment,” represents Malchut, which acts in concealment and around which everything revolves.

Mordecai (Mor-Dror) is a quality of Bina, the righteous man who needs nothing. He is only waiting for the state where he can really serve.

Ahasuerus is a king, above whom is the Creator.

The people represent all our desires. This whole group of actors acts out Purim.

Question: Indeed, we perceive Purim as a children’s holiday when everyone wears costumes and puts on masks. Why is there such a custom?

Answer: People put on masks because we do not fully know the essence of this holiday: who each one is really acting, who is hiding behind what, and why all this is necessary.

If we try to act out this story correctly within ourselves, in the soul, in the connection between us, then in the end we reach a state called “Purim.”

Pur, Goral—the lot is cast in such a way that is absolutely unclear why. In the end, everything should have been on the side of the villain Haman, who wanted to destroy the people, but it turned out in the opposite way: he was hanged on the same gallows that he prepared for Mordecai.

“We Have Gathered Here”

laitman_942Spirituality can only be reached through connection. We are in the spiritual world, but we do not feel it because we only feel ourselves.

Therefore, we need to make a leap in our perception, transfer it from the personal one, in which everyone feels themselves in this world, to the feeling of existence within the upper force of bestowal and love, which connects all of us together into one vessel, one desire.

All souls extend from the soul of Adam HaRishon because after the sin with the Tree of Knowledge this soul was divided into 600,000 souls. And one light that filled this vessel, this single great desire, was divided into many parts, many bodies, individual desires.

That is why we see this world consisting of billions of people with conflicting, disconnected desires. If we want to reveal the spiritual world, the world of truth, we must connect.

That is why the first lesson of the World Kabbalah Convention 2020 is called “We Have Gathered Here” because there is really nothing else that can be done. If we gather and connect into one soul, as it was before the shattering of Adam HaRishon, before the sin of the Tree of Knowledge, we will return to the upper world, to the spiritual state, becoming again the first man Adam.

Therefore, a person has nothing to do in this world, except to look for ways to connect with others. Of course, this is against our nature, there is nothing more repulsive and opposite to it, and therefore, we do not want to hear about it.

Yet, the Creator, the upper light, influences us again and again with infinite patience, in order to teach us that nothing will change for the better until we decide to connect in a good way.

This is how humanity learns. People do not yet understand what is happening to them, but the impressions of the global crisis and growing problems penetrate our sensory organs, our memory, and whether we want it or not, they make us wiser, more experienced. One day we will be wise enough to agree that there is no way out but to connect.

However, if we study the wisdom of Kabbalah, it becomes clear to us what needs to be done. After all, we reveal not only the disease and its cause, which comes from human egoism, but also the remedy that allows us to escape egoism. If I suffer so much because of it, then I need to get rid of it.

The wisdom of Kabbalah helps us in this, we just need to organize a small group of like-minded people and attract the reforming light. Kabbalah teaches us how our desires can connect with each other and work together, and perform actions called “restriction,” “screen,” “reflected light,” “Zivug de Hakaa” (coupling while striking), and “reception for the sake of bestowal.”

By studying what happens in our desires, we gradually correct ourselves. When we learn and talk about it, the force that gradually changes us is shining upon us.

As it is written, “Penny by penny joins into a great amount.” We have a system that can include us in itself, connect us, and draw the reforming light that will influence us. Even if we do not really want it now, in the end, we will demand that the force of bestowal, altruistic relationships above our egoism, will be revealed between us.

All souls come from the one soul of Adam created by the Creator. After Adam‘s sin with the Tree of Knowledge, that is, after the shattering of this single desire, which ceased to be like the Creator losing its altruistic intention and becoming egoistic, it was divided into 600,000 private souls.

The one light that filled Adam HaRishon in the Garden of Eden, that is, in the state when he was connected into one soul and held within himself the force of bestowal, Bina, disappeared after the shattering, and only a tiny spark of it remained in each part.

Now, when we find ourselves inside bodies that were added to the broken parts of the soul, we feel the inclination to connect all the spiritual sparks together. That is why we are gathering and working on our connection, thus bringing back the upper light that will shine within us.

When the light returns, it becomes 620 times stronger than before because we are acting against the distance that appeared between us and therefore, we reach adhesion with the upper force, with the Creator.

One common desire was on the degree of Bina, which is called the soul and when it shattered it fell down to the degree of Malchut. We need to collect all the particles that fell into Malchut and raise them to Bina, the Garden of Eden. Malchut is called this world and Bina is called the next world.

Therefore, through our connection, we must raise ourselves from this world, in which we feel ourselves now to the future world, to the degree of Bina, where we will feel our existence as eternal, perfect without any hardships and problems, all of us together, permeated with the force of bestowal and love for each other.

The upper light intensifies its glow all the time, and when we feel this illumination from the spiritual force of bestowal and love, we feel more and more opposite to it. It turns out that every day we feel worse and worse, the world becomes more and more corrupted. There is nothing left but to correct ourselves and become like the force of bestowal that shines upon us from above.

That is why we see this world in crisis, helpless, and not understanding what is happening. Perhaps tomorrow all the volcanoes on earth will wake up and start spewing billions of tons of ash into the atmosphere so that we will not see the sun. The world will freeze and sink into darkness.

We ourselves activate these forces because we live in an integral system and we must know how to bring the forces of nature into balance. If we become kind to each other, then nature will become kinder to us.

There is no other way to influence inanimate matter, plants and animals, these forces in nature, if not through a human. A person is a thought, an intention. The physical body is just an animal, but by our attitude toward each other, we can elevate ourselves to a higher degree: from animalistic level to human level. The human being, “Adam” means “similar to the Creator.”

Therefore, we must understand that all the disasters and problems in the world are sent specifically to oblige us to move and begin to put the world in order, establishing a balance in it. To do this, we just need to get closer to each other and work on your egoism.

Then from the human level, from the highest level of nature, we will oblige all the other forces of nature that are below us on the animal, vegetative, and inanimate levels to come into balance, and the whole world will find peace and happiness.

The state of our world Bnei Baruch group is exceptional; after all, out of all the billions of individual souls, we were chosen to be in the system of Israel, that is, the system directed “straight to the Creator,” which pulls all of humanity to correction.

All Problems In The World Are Sent To Oblige Us To Bring It To Balance

laitman_962.3Spirituality is attained only through connection. We are in the spiritual world, but we do not feel it; we feel only ourselves. Therefore, we need to make a leap in our perception, transferring it from the personal, in which everyone feels themselves in this world, to feeling existence within the upper force of bestowal and love, uniting all of us together in one vessel, one desire.

All souls come from the soul of Adam HaRishon because after the sin of the Tree of Knowledge, this soul was divided into 600,000 souls. And the one light that filled this vessel, one big desire, was divided into many parts, bodies, and private desires. Therefore, we see this world divided into billions of people with conflicting and fragmented desires. And if we want to reveal the spiritual world, the world of truth, we must unite.

That is why the first lesson of the 2020 World Kabbalah Convention is called “We Have Gathered Here”; there really is nothing else to do. If we gather and unite in one soul, as it was before the shattering of Adam HaRishon, before the sin of the Tree of Knowledge, we will return to the upper world, in a spiritual state, again becoming Adam HaRishon.

Therefore, a person has nothing to do in this world besides looking for ways to connect with others. And of course, this is against our nature, there is nothing more repulsive and opposite to it; therefore, we do not want to hear about it. But the Creator, the upper light, with infinite patience, acts on us again and again to teach us that nothing will change for the better until we decide to unite in a positive way.

Humanity is learning. People still do not understand what is happening to us, but the impressions of the global crisis and growing problems penetrate our senses, our memory, and whether we like it or not, they make us grow wiser and gain experience. Someday we will grow so wise that we will agree that there is no way out but to connect.

If we study the wisdom of Kabbalah, then what to do becomes clear to us. After all, we reveal not only the disease and its cause emanating from human egoism, but also a medicine that lets us hide from egoism. If I suffer a lot because of it, then I need to free myself from it.

The wisdom of Kabbalah helps us in this, we just need to organize a small group of like-minded people and attract the light that reforms. Kabbalah teaches us how our desires can connect with each other and work together, performing actions called “contraction,” “screen,” “reflected light,” “striking,” and “receiving for the sake of bestowal.” By studying what happens in our desires, we gradually correct ourselves. And when we learn and talk about it, the light that shines on us changes us gradually .

As the saying goes, “penny by penny accumulates to a large sum.” We have a system that can include us within itself, connect us with each other, and attract the light that reforms that will affect us. Even if we do not really want it now, in the end we will demand that the forces of bestowal, altruistic relations atop our egoism, be revealed between us.1

All souls come from the one soul of Adam created by the Creator. But after Adam sinned with the Tree of Knowledge, that is, the shattering of this one desire, which ceased to be like the Creator, it lost the altruistic intention and became selfish; it was divided into 600,000 individual souls. One light filled Adam HaRishon in the “Garden of Eden,” that is, in a state where he was united into one soul and retained the force of bestowal, Bina, within himself, disappeared after the shattering, and in every particle only its tiny spark remained.

Now that we find ourselves in bodies added to the fragments of the soul, we feel a desire to bring all spiritual sparks together. Therefore, we gather and work on our connection, thereby returning the upper light that will shine within us. But by returning, the light becomes 620 times stronger than before because we are acting against the distance that has arisen between us, and therefore we reach the integration with upper force, the Creator.2

One common desire was on the degree of Bina, which is called the soul, and when it shattered, it fell down to the degree of Malchut. We need to collect all the particles that fell into Malchut and elevate them to Bina, to the Garden of Eden. Malchut is called “this world,” and Bina is called “the future world.” Therefore, through our connection, we must elevate ourselves from this world, in which we now feel ourselves, to the “future world,” to the degree of Bina, where we feel our existence as eternal, perfect, without hardships and problems, all together, imbued with the power of bestowal and love for each other.3

The upper light strengthens its glow all the time, and when we feel this illumination from the spiritual power of bestowal and love, we feel more and more opposite to it. It turns out that every day we feel increasingly worse, the world becomes increasingly corrupt. There is nothing left but to correct ourselves and become similar to the force of bestowal that shines on us from above.

And therefore, we see this world in crisis, helpless, and not understanding what is happening. Perhaps all the volcanoes on earth will wake up tomorrow and begin to spew billions of tons of ash into the atmosphere so that we no longer see the sun. The world would freeze and plunge into darkness. But we ourselves activate these forces because we live in an integrated system and we must know how to bring the forces of nature into equilibrium. If we become kind to each other, then nature will become kind to us.

There is no other way to act on inanimate matter, plants and animals, on these forces in nature, if not through humans. Moreover, the person is a thought, an intention. The physical body is just an animal, but through our relationships with each other, we can elevate ourselves one step higher: from the animal level to the human. “Human – Adam” means “like the Creator [Adameh le Elyon].”

Therefore, we must understand that all the misfortunes and problems in the world are sent specifically to oblige us to move and begin to put the world in order, to establish equilibrium in it. To do so, we just need to approach each other and work on our egoism. Then from the human level, from the highest level of nature, we will oblige all other forces of nature, which are below us at the animate, vegetative and still levels, to enter into balance, and the whole world will find peace and happiness.4

The state of our Bnei Baruch world group is exceptional because out of all the billions of individual souls, we were chosen to be in the system of Israel, that is, directed “directly to the Creator,” which pulls humanity toward correction.5

Coronavirus Vaccine

laitman_944The coronavirus has already spread to eighty countries, and shows us how much we depend on each other. We are searching for the way these viruses are transmitted from one person to another through airplanes or physical contact.

But in fact, they do not spread in this way but through our thoughts. After all, we are connected in a single field, and if I think badly of you, then with my thoughts I awaken thoughts in you that cause all kinds of manifestations and consequences in you.

This phenomenon is known to people who are engaged in international security. The science of Kabbalah explains that our thoughts possess either the most destructive power or are the kindest of all the forces of nature. But unfortunately, we are acting using only destructive thoughts.

Therefore, neither preventive measures in the fight against coronaviruses nor the invention of new antibiotics will help us. If not this virus, then another one will appear. We must finally understand that we need to cure the relationships between people. If our relationships and thoughts become good, then no virus will break through.

Unkind thoughts about others or disunity clothe into the human body and manifest as disease. This is a disease at the highest level, which we are unable to defend ourselves against because we do not have power over our thoughts. We do not know who is thinking about what, and we cannot control even our own thoughts.

Therefore, this is a big problem. One must be taught how to control one’s thoughts so that they are good for everyone. This is the only way we can defeat all viruses. For such correction, we need the science of Kabbalah; there is no other way.

After all, human egoistic nature makes us think only about ourselves. Therefore, a special science, a unique method, and work in a group are needed to teach a person to think about others. It seems so simple, but it is the absolute opposite of human nature.

As we begin to correct ourselves, we will see that the world is changing in relation to us. We will begin to feel that there is a special power around us called the upper light, which acts and organizes the whole world in the best possible way. We enter this force and live in it, and then we have no fear of any coronaviruses or other diseases.

Not too long ago, we held a large international Kabbalistic convention in Tel Aviv. Every day there was a fear that the Ministry of Health would forbid us to attend the congress.

After all, this was a huge meeting with more than 5,000 people gathering together in a big city, sitting together, hugging, eating at the same table, breathing the same air, and spending three days in the same room. All the air was filled with different viruses, but no one was infected.

This is because through our connection we made the most correct and effective vaccination and disinfection. This can serve as an example for humanity of how the power of unity cleanses, settles and sanctifies everything.

By the fact that we want to unite in a single thought, for the sake of one goal, we create a force field, each with our own thought. Thought is power. Connecting all our forces, we create a force field, which is the highest of all fields existing in the world, physical or biological.

If we set this field above ourselves and want it to connect us, all of us wanting to connect with this field, and become “as one man with one heart,” all as friends and brothers, then nothing can harm us.

This is how it works, because one’s thought is the highest impact one can make. Therefore, it destroys all the viruses existing below him at lower levels: inanimate, vegetative, and animate. This field radiates love and unity, which together create a global positive force that destroys all negative factors.

Therefore, there is nothing to fear. We can drink poison, and if we are aimed in the right connection with the spiritual field, then nothing can harm us. People can protect themselves by being in good contact with us, and then they will constantly receive an antivirus that will protect them from disease. I wish you all good health!

Impressions From The 2020 Israel Congress

laitman_229Question: What are your impressions of the past congress?

Answer: This congress will be felt by us for a very long time to come. We cannot yet evaluate it. There has been a powerful and serious connection between people, groups, and, I would say, continents. Moreover, it happened at a time when the whole world is in panic from a spreading virus and other problems: “What will happen to us?”

I think it is a wonderful time. We live in a special era. For the first time in human history, we are entering a new state, a feeling, awareness of the upper world.

It was only revealed once in a small group of people when they came out of Egypt. However, what is going to happen now, starting from scratch, in all the nations of the world after the shattering, mingling, and so on, is, of course, a special state.

I am very happy about it. You have no idea how great, special, and lucky you are. After all, out of billions, a small group of several thousands of people have been chosen. It’s amazing.

Now the post-congress period begins. It’s time for overcoming, and time for real work. Certain falls and descents are inevitable. In fact, the descent is a special state of the soul and body when it grinds, chews, and absorbs what it has received.

And we have had a lot of impressions. We could not even get through them. We grabbed them with, what is called, our mouth open. Now, these impressions are gradually accumulating in our mind and soul, slowly starting to be stored in a certain archive.

Using the absorbed material, we are already climbing to the next stage. All our previous knowledge receives elevation.

The Best Remedy For The Coronavirus

laitman_938.07The coronavirus has become a global-scale problem for humanity. The death toll of the virus that originated in China and has spread throughout the world has already surpassed 3,000 people. How should we relate to this problem?

We encounter numerous problems on the path of our development. New viruses and new diseases appear all the time. Due to global warming, the earth evaporates and we discover something new every day. We may witness the comeback of diseases that existed in the distant past, some 50,000 to 100,000 years ago.

We don’t know where the new viruses come from, we didn’t live back then since humanity exists on this planet consciously only for a few thousand years. That is why we may expect the manifestation of an increasingly large number of new viruses and bacteria.

The wisdom of Kabbalah gives a simple means of protection: we have nothing to be afraid of if we unite with each other. By way of our unity, we create a place and the force that kills all the viruses. Try it and you will see.

For example, we recently held the World Kabbalah Convention at the heart of Tel Aviv. More than 5,000 people from 78 countries participated in it. We were together for the three days of the main convention as well as before and after it, for 10 days in total. And no one got sick, or even caught a cold.

The thing is that we have a vaccine: a special disinfecting agent that eliminates all the microbes—it is our unification. This is the force of nature that acts against all evil forces. If people want to unite together, they fear no virus, they get a vaccine that kills all the viruses, both spiritual and material.

This is why I had no doubts about holding this convention. Some suggested canceling the convention or at least restricting access to people who have to avoid big gatherings for fear of different infections, meaning nursing mothers or people with chronic diseases.

However, I’m confident that such a convention does not pose any health risk. We have the remedy for all the viruses, we only need to learn how to use it, and it is not simple.

People need to learn how to utilize the connection between them that can eliminate and disinfect all infections and kill viruses that exist at the biological and also spiritual degrees. This might seem mystical and unreal, but precisely the connection between people is the remedy for all diseases and problems. It is because our unity takes place at the highest possible level in this world.

There are four levels of nature: still, vegetative, animate, and human. At the still, vegetative, and animate levels, nature exists the way it was created, without changes. But at the human level, we may influence what happens. If we build good relationships between us, we pass energy and force to each other so that it as if vaccinates us from evil thoughts, problems, and bad relationships.

But if we don’t correct relations between people, we stimulate the proliferation and manifestation of various viruses and natural disasters: volcanic eruptions, tsunamis, typhoons, and so on. Everything depends on the relations between people because we exist at the highest level of nature. That is why our attitude either kills nature, or on the contrary, commands it to become better.
